You perhaps wouldn’t associate sleek designer accents with computer peripherals, but data storage specialist LaCie is offering just that with its new Starck Mobile, which has been developed in conjunction with Philippe Starck.

Looking more like a men’s pocketbook or a glasses case, the Starck Mobile arrives as a subtly inconspicuous desktop hardware addition thanks to the gentle curves of its polished but sturdy aluminium casing.

Pleasing aesthetics aside, the Starck Mobile is built on “SuperSpeed” USB 3.0 and provides performance up to ten times quicker than USB 2.0. It also comes equipped with a spacious 500GBs of storage space.

Other contributing aspects include a full year’s access to 10GBs of Wuala Online Storage, Setup Assistant software for quick and easy installation, and user peace of mind thanks to the LaCie Backup Assistant for automatic data protection.

When not lending his artistic talents to external data storage devices, Philippe Starck plies his trade by creating classic hotels and such influential items as “the revolutionary lemon juicer” and the “transparent Louis Ghost Chair”.

Compatible with Windows PCs and Apple Mac computers, the LaCie Starck Mobile comes attached to a retail price tag of $109.99 USD.
